Edison’s entertainment complex in Edwardsville has introducing Foodcation 2020, following in the spirit of the old drive-in restaurants.
The business is offering carhop service with a fresh, new menu and two additional days of operation. The new experience will feature outdoor cooking/grilling right, a sound system for entertainment while waiting, and safe, social distancing spots to park while guests receive carhop service in a manner that complies with state and CDC guidelines.
Foodcation 2020 debuted this week and will be available Wednesday through Friday from 4:30 to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from noon to 7 p.m.
“The new menu was created to revive good memories of vacations and road trips. These are items that we don’t usually offer and are difficult to find on other local menus,” Edison’s General Manager and Head Chef Randy Williams said. “We also kept some of our staple items that our customers love getting at Edison’s.”
People who was to place pick-up orders and skip the carhop service can call (618) 307-9020 between 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
Edison’s President and CEO Matt McSparin said: “Since the restrictions were extended to May 30 by our governor, I challenged our team to come up with something more interesting and exciting for our food offerings. They sure did not disappoint. As business owners we have been challenged in many ways, including trying to keep morale up in our community. We think that bringing a little fun to the experience may put a smile on our customers’ faces.”
